Navy Bans Bibles then Kicks Atheist Group to the Curb – Puts Bibles Back in Hotels

Hat/Tip to Tim Brown at the Freedom Outpost. Those tolerant lefties are at it again. This time, they tried to intimidate the Navy into removing Gideon Bibles from hotel rooms. Atheists from the Freedom from Religion Foundation had complained back in March to the US Navy that the Navy was unconstitutionally showing preference to Christianity. As a result, the Navy sent out a memo in June informing all lodge managers that any religious materials, including Bibles, would be removed from the rooms under “established procedures for the lost-and-found property.” However, upon a review of its policies, the Navy ordered that […]

Rabbi Shot and Killed While Walking to Synagogue: Was it a Hate Crime Encouraged by “Progressive” Anti-Semitism?

A week ago,  a Rabbi was shot and killed in Miami Beach while walking to services.  The local NBC affiliate has more… Please note that another nearby Synagogue was vandalized recently with a swastika and the word “Hamas.” In the meantime, we have chronicled the rampant anti-semitism of the political left. Public School Teacher Gives Assignment: Explain why “Jews are Evil“ Stealth Indoctrination, With a Side of Anti-Semitism Anti-Semitism Alert: Obama Supporters Call for Israel’s Destruction Occupy Commemorates Holocaust Day by Posting Anti-Semitic Cartoon Story Update: Occupy Oakland’s Anti-Semitic Pledge, and MSM Ignores Flag Burning Anti-Semitism Alert: Increasing on College […]

Change, Intervention, and Dependency

The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has  gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]

Liberal Logic Vs Hobby Lobby, Chick-Fil-A, The Tea party, and Hamas

Here is an example how liberals view Hobby lobby, Chick-fil-A, the Tea Party, and Hamas.

Christian Divorce Rate Far Lower Than Previously Thought

Critics of Christian morality have more facts to ignore as of late.  For years now, it has been said that the divorce rate among Christians was, for all practical purposes, identical to the general population.  However, a recently revealed study of eight years shows that the divorce rate for Christians is far less that previously thought.  CBN has more… ATLANTA — It’s long been believed that half of America’s marriages end in divorce and the problem is just as bad in the Church as the rest of the country. But when Harvard-trained researcher Shaunti Feldhahn tried to find the actual […]

Jimmy Carter Pushes US Government To Recognize Hamas

This shouldn’t come as any kind of major surprise to anyone who has paid attention, but former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news. He is really making a splash with an op-ed he coauthored, in which he pushes for our government to formally recognize the terrorist organization, Hamas, as a legitimate political actor. Aren’t you glad this man isn’t in charge of our foreign policy right now? Although, what our current leadership is sadly lacking. Does anyone really take Jimmy Carter seriously anymore? The idea that he can be so obscenely incorrect in his assessment of the situation […]

Some Thoughts on the Current Conflict Between Hamas and Israel, from 2011

Given the current state of affairs in the Middle East, and especially concerning Israel, I thought it might be good to revisit a post that I wrote a little over three years ago… As I’ve watched the “Arab Spring” unfold, and have monitored words and deeds of the “palestinians,” some ideas come to mind.  The entire region is claimed as holy by three religions, and one in particular, has been inflamed into what seems to be a genocidal rage.  With the “new anti-Semitism” out in the open, and spreading, I fear that the next great international conflict will involve Israel. […]

Progressive View: Socialize Debt To Grow The Economy

Socializing debt is certainly not a new concept. Who among us. who has ever bought a house, did not take advantage the mortgage interest deduction when itemizing our tax returns? What a great deal! Those who rent and the rich who buy theirs house for cash are forced by law to help us payoff our mortgages. The real estate industry lobbies hard in support of the mortgage interest deduction by arguing the housing industry is a main driver of our economy. Now, as reported by Investors Business Daily, we learn that the paragon of progressive virtue and faux indian princess, […]

Champion Of The 1.6 Percenters

According to a new survey by the Center For Disease Control, only 1.6% of Americans identify themselves as homosexual.

Kristallnacht 2.0 in Paris: Mob Vandalizes Jewish Businesses

H/T: Instapundit

I wrote a series of posts a few years back comparing our present day issues with the 1930′s. I see that this is coming to pass, at least in Paris, where an Anti-Semitic mob (read Muslims or leftists), vandalized Jewish owned businesses in Paris suburb…

Code Pink Kommisar Gets Photobombed by Pro-Israel Supporter!

The Code Pink(o) dear leader and apparent anti-semite, got photobombed in epic fashion at a recent rally, likely while calling for the death of all Jews.   H/T goes to Weasel Zippers… Gadsden, and Hebrew?  That’s a combination that will make liberal heads explode with twice the ordinary yield.

What is Happening in Israel, in a Little Over Five Minutes Updated!

How many gay Americans are there? Less than 2%

Hat/Tip to CNS News. In 2011 Gallup conducted a survey, asking Americans to estimate how much of the population was homosexual. The results were surprising in that respondents thought that 1 in 4, or 25% of Americans were gay. Nothing could be farther from the truth, it seems. Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2011, a Gallup survey found that 52 percent of Americans believed […]

Patriot or Vigilante? A US Veteran’s Actions Revisited

Our southern border with Mexico is barely a penciled-in line on some obscure map these days. The situation down there is chaotic and we have our President to thank for it. In light of all the recent happenings  there, I thought it apropos to revisit a story from Reno, Nevada in 2007. In October of that year, US Army Veteran Jim Brossard took matters into his own hands when he heard that a business owner in Reno was flying the Mexican flag ABOVE the American flag. He describes the incident this way on his website: In October of 2007, I […]

When In Doubt, Islam Always Turns To Violence

There are some things in this world that can always be depended on. For instance, we know the IRS will always be coming after your money. Even death can not stop their incessant grabbing for more and more tax dollars. We also know liberals will always blame conservatives for the very things they are doing themselves. That is a proven fact. And Islam? For the most part, the followers of Islam have but one way to settle their disputes with each other and the rest of the world. When in doubt, they almost always turn to some form of violence […]

Starstruck Obama Voter has Fundamental Transformation: Must See Video

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. We all remember the soundbite that Peggy Joseph uttered after Obama’s euphoric election back in 2008. “I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage,” a worshipful Ms. Joseph said after attending a 2008 Obama rally at the height of his messianic euphoria stage. As with almost everything associated with Barack Obama, when the image meets reality, there’s a harsh slap in the face of realization that he’s not the Messiah. Documentary film maker, Joel Gilbert looked up Ms. Joesph and sat […]

Apartment Manager tells tenant he cannot display the US Flag – IN his own home!

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and ABC10. A Patriotic American in Santee, California (where else?) has been told that he cannot display his American Flag, INSIDE his own home. A Santee man said he was told he could not display the American flag inside his apartment window, but management will not tell him why. Steve Roberts is a proud to be an American. His father served in the military for more than 25 years. “The American flag, it means to me freedom,” Roberts told 10News. A year ago, Roberts bought an American flag and hung it across his front window, inside his […]

Barefoot & Pregnant. Is that how Matt Lauer sees women?

  Hat/Tip to The Grindstone. We all know that Matt Lauer is a big lefty, that’s not news. But now, thanks to his very sexist question of General Motors CEO, Mary Barra, we know he’s also a misogynist. He calls into question her ability to run General Motors and be a Mother at the same time. I wonder, how many other automobile executives did he ask that same question to? None. If you are so inclined, like me, then you go back and watch Lauer’s interviews with CEOs of other automobile manufacturers. And what you find is that he never […]

George W. Bush Outclasses Barack Obama’s Fourth Of July Message By A Country Mile

  A leader versus a community organizer. Via BPR It’s no secret that President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush have contrasting leadership styles, and it was reflected in the very different messages the two sent celebrating the Fourth of July. Obama’s Facebook page posted this, as pointed out by the Young Conservatives: Always including a photo of himself in commemorating occasions, the president’s Twitter account posted this: Bush expressed his thoughts on the holiday with this Facebook post: Now I know that Obama himself didn’t put those pics on his Facebook or Twitter accounts, but he surrounds […]

Obama Backs off of ‘Economic Inequality’

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Well, it looks like the Democrats have been focus-grouping again, because they’ve changed the way they talk about income inequality. President Barack Obama and many Democrats are backing away from the subject of economic inequality, instead focusing more on economic “opportunity” and lifting the fortunes of the middle class. The shift is a marked shift the president’s reelection year stance in 2012, when he called inequality a “fundamental threat the American Dream,” reports The Washington Post. Instead, the new focus on issues like the gender pay gap and minimum wage reflects concerns of a more broad number […]
